Equity

 
 
And there came a time when to sigh or to cry
Was deemed antisocial behaviour.

So we all put our shoulders to the grindstone
And behaved the right way.

But up there in the tops of the various towers
They laughed at us and took away

What was rightfully ours.

Then one day the foundations of a system
That all abhorred
Shook and trembled
And started to fall.

Now the trick is how to make sure
That the fragments of crumbling edifice
Are shared well between those
That made it all happen
And those for whom
Wealth and justice
Befalls those who play the smartest game.

And how to generate a society
That makes manifest humanity’s greater wisdom
Without having to shoot the lot of the bastards.
